If you’re looking for somewhere to meet for a casual date, or to just catch up with a friend who moved upstate last year and hasn’t been back since, Barcha is the spot.

Two good options: the marvelously crunchy chicken wings coated in sweet-and-spicy harissa honey or the fried chicken jibarito, which replaces soft buns with tostones.
